Busy, Busy, Busy.

SO. I’ve been pretty busy as of late.  Winter break was fun but I guess life is called “life” for a reason, right; time to go back to studying non-stop. Hah!

So why don’ I just do a recap of this entire week?

Monday I had a GREAT workout in my Newtons.  It was a 6×3 minute, with a 20 minute warm-up and 20 minute-cool down. roughly 9.5 Miles or so?

I also received an entire loaf of PANERA WHOLE GRAIN bread from a good friend! (Isn’t it gorgeous?)  It’s so so good toasted with some peanut butter or just used as sandwich bread.  You can even make it into cinnamon french toast!

Tuesday was an easy 60 with 4 strides at the end.  It was -16 Degrees Out. Brrr.  This meant two pairs of socks, two pairs of gloves, a face mask, and uhh…how many layers was I wearing?

Wednesday I had a two-a-day.  The morning run was negative temperatures outside but still managed to squeeze in around 5.5 Miles.  The afternoon run was a little more relaxed, did about 4.5 or 5 miles there and 4×100 strides.

Thursday I could NOT run outside.  The windchill brought the temperature down to -40 degrees for most of the day so I did a modified hill workout on the treadmill 🙂 this was about 70 minutes total, average 7:30/mi pace.

Recovered with my Homemade Banana-Chocolate Vivanno

1 banana, 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 scoop chocolate whey, 1 c. skim milk, 1 tsp. instant coffee granules (and opt: 1/2 tsp. cinnamon)

Today (Friday), same deal as yesterday.  Windchill of -40 (how long is this going to go on???).  SO I did about 4.5 miles on the treadmill, 7:45/mi pace with 4×100 strides at the end.

And a few random other food pics from the week….

I’ll try to post a little more often, but if you don’t hear from me for a while, I’m probably somewhere under a pile of books!

Hello, WordPress :)

First post on WordPress! (Bama aka Matt convinced me so I’m thinking, why not! Let’s see how long this lasts…)

So a little about me in as short of a paragraph as I can make it:

My name’s Christina. I never got serious about running until last year via Cross Country and have now participated in a few road races since, have ran in the State meet, and PR’d there as well. I run on a Varsity high school team for the third fastest team in the state. My enjoyments in life mainly come from this, and good food! This being said, I have healthier tastes, but do not mind the occasional sweets; what’s life without a little bit of ice cream, right? So that’s pretty much what my blog will be about- food, and running, and a healthy balance & perspective on the two.

So for today,

RUN: Easy day today after the intervals yesterday. Legs still sore from that workout.

Distance: 7.1 Miles

Total Time: 50:49

Pace: 7:10

The weather was nice but RIDICULOUSLY windy. Everything felt up-hill! And I think it’s supposed to snow storm later today. 😦


After my run I stretched out a little and had my typical Protein Shake with Frozen Fruit (today’s choice of fruit was a handful of frozen mixed berries)

Then I had some Flax toast with Smart Balance Peanut Butter and a dash of cinnamon… (Warm toast is the BEST.)

PS: I have a really bad addiction to SB Peanut Butter.  I could go through a jar in a few days. Tops.

Lunch was this:

A ham and Swiss melt on 100% whole grain rye bread with caraway seeds, baby carrots, and an addition of a Red Delicious apple on the side.

And here are the rest of the goods for the week!
